Use this little trick to save the house plants during your absence (for example, a week-long vacation or a business trip). With this self-made automatic soil moistening system, you do not have to bother your neighbors, friends, and relatives!
Required components can be easily found in every house and they are the following:
- Suitable plastic bottle.
- A cork.
- A drill or an awl.
Homemade watering system
Drill a narrow hole in the cork exactly in the middle. The narrower it is, the longer your self-made irrigation system will work. Then dig a small pit (about 2 inches) in a flower pot. After that, get a full bottle of water, seal it with a cork and dig it into the ground with the "neck down". Do the same procedure with the rest plants.
That’s all! Now you can go on vacation! Usually, one bottle is enough for 4-5 days.
This simple trick will make your absence completely unnoticeable for the greenery. If you like our life hack, do not forget to share it with your friends.
